ORDER

Subject:- Fixation of Pay of Group 'B' Officers of the Department of Income Tax at the time of placement in Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-2 Non Functional Scale.


Ministry of Finance vide Part 'C' - Section - II of their Gazette Notification No.622(E) dated 29th August, 2008 read with GSR 650 (E) dated 8th September, 2009, revised the pay scale of Income Tax Officers Group 'B' as follows:-
Sr.No. Revised Pay Scale Corresponding Pay Band & Grade Pay
1 Rs.7500-12000 Rs.9300-34800 + Grade Pay Rs.4800, PB-2
2 Rs.8000-13500
(after four years)
Rs.9300-34800 + Grade Pay Rs.5400, PB-2
>
As already clarified vide this office letter dated 14-09-2009, placement in higher grade pay after four years as notified is admissible to eligible officers completing four years service on or before 01.01.2006 effective from 01.01.2006 and in other cases from the date they complete four years service after 01.01.2006.

A doubt has arisen whether the benefit of granting one increment as laid down in Rule 13(1) of CCS (RP) Rules,2008 is applicable at the time of placing Group 'B' officers in the higher Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-2 after completion of four years of Regular Service. The issue was referred to the Department of Expenditure, Implementation Cell, Minsitry of Finance seeking clarification on the above points.

3. Department of Expenditure, Implementation Cell, Ministry of Finance have clarified vide their U.O. No.10/1/2009-IC dated 21.12.2009 that Income Tax Officers Group 'B' are to be allowed the benefit of pay at the time of allowing Non Functional Pay Scale of Rs.9300-34800 + Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-2 on completion of four years of Regular Service.

4. Actin may, therefore, be taken to re-fix the pay of Income Tax Officers Group 'B' accordingly and arrears drawn where due.

Nowhere in the recommendations of the 6th CPC and also acceptance of Government the word 'regular' is not mentioned. So it is an after thought decision. This is required to be challenged in the Court of Law.

What about the grant of Rs. 5400/- grade pay to Assistant Accounts Officers of organised accounts cadres ? They are also Group B gazetted officers getting Rs. 4800/- as grade pay.
